The president of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in Punjab, Rana Sanaullah, has declared the party's readiness and confidence in forming the next government in the upcoming elections scheduled for February 8. Addressing a press conference in Model Town, Lahore, he revealed that the party has received approximately six to eight applications per constituency. However, a single candidate will represent each constituency in the elections. The party plans to announce the candidates after completing the selection process.
Major Inclusions in PML-N
Sanaullah highlighted several notable additions to PML-N, including Dost Muhammad Khan Mazari, an ex-member of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and former Deputy Speaker of the Punjab Assembly. Mazari, who secured his seat from Rajanpur in the 2018 elections on a PTI ticket, is among several political figures from various constituencies who have recently joined PML-N.
Commitment to Pull Pakistan Out of Crisis
Reiterating the commitment made by PML-N and Nawaz Sharif on October 21, Sanaullah expressed the party's intent to pull the country out of crisis, a feat he claimed no other party has achieved in the past. Underlining PML-N's eagerness for the elections, he affirmed the party's expectation to lead the next government.
Call for PTI to Separate from Guilty Parties
Sanaullah further urged PTI to distance itself from those involved in the May 9 incidents, declaring that the guilty parties will face punishment. This comes amidst PML-N's active pursuit of forming electoral alliances with various political groups across the country, including PML-Q and MQM-P, as the elections draw near.
